A 13-year-old boy was violently attacked after he was cornered by a group in the Swan Theatre car park in High Wycombe.

The boy was with three friends cycling around the car park when a larger group of boys aged 14 to 16 approached them at around 4:30pm on September 11.

After cornering the boy they repeatedly punched and kicked him whilst he was on the floors.
